DC brides, did you get to soak up the rustic wedding ideas IRL at last month’s Big Fake Wedding event? Taking their bridal show alternative to DC, vendors were challenged to create a romantic farm-inspired design for a thoughtful couple with a soft and airy style. Vibrant earth tones and spring blooms made for lots of lovely vignettes with Stone Tower Winery as ultimate contemporary backdrop. If you missed it, find the recap with photos by Mikaela Marie Photography, Stefanie Kamerman Photography, & Chelsea Blanch Photography below:
Pretty jewels by LEL Jewelry set the tone for the event. And how pretty is this bridal comb?
Janiel and Marissa met when they were in middle school and started dating as teenagers. On their 8 year anniversary of dating, Janiel took Marissa in a helicopter ride above the skyline of Atlanta at sunset and asked her to marry him and she of course said yes! After 12 years of dating and being engaged, the two finally became one in 2016! We’re so excited to celebrate The Solomeros’ three year wedding anniversary with them at The Big Fake Wedding Washington D.C!
